A new public opinion poll being released today found that more than 60 percent of voters think that televising U.S. Supreme Court proceedings would be "good for democracy." The poll, conducted by PublicMind, also indicates that more than half of voters believe that Supreme Court justices, who currently enjoy life tenure, should be limited to 18 years on the bench. The Supreme Court has clung to its long-standing opposition to cameras despite a steady but generally low-intensity campaign to change its mind.
